Leah and Ash are still desperate to sell their stunning renovated home after a disastrous auction result on The Block’s November finale.

The couple have been left floundering with ‘no takers’ in sight, after one buyer, who was prepared to pay $3.1million for the Hampton East home, dropped out last month.

Considered one of the hot properties on the Block this year, the sprawling five-bedroom, four-bathroom pad was passed in during the season finale at $2.9million.

And now Yahoo Lifestyle reports that interest in the lavish retro home has ‘hit an all time low.’

A source told the publication that the longer the house sits on the market, ‘the further away an ending is in sight.’

‘A Christmas miracle is needed at this stage if they want the house sold in 2023,’ the insider claimed.

The insider even speculated that it’s possible that the houses for the upcoming season of The Block will go under the hammer before Leah and Ash can get a buyer.

According to the report, House 2 is still sitting on the market with no bids on offer. 

Leah and Ash’s House 2 stirred up much excitement among potential bidders ahead of The Block’s auction in November.

The Block buyer’s agents predicted big things for the couple after the luxury home was listed with a price guide of $2.7million – $2.9million.

Designed as an updated version of the classic Art Deco-style, the spectacular dwelling features a spacious open plan, and expansive living areas.

Features include a dramatic split-level dining/living room, an ultra-modern kitchen and al fresco entertainment area.

The dramatic Block auction saw Steph and Gian as the runaway winners, with their house selling for an incredible $5million.

They walked away with a $1.65 million profit plus prize money of $100,000, bringing their total earnings to a record-breaking $1.75 million.

Meanwhile, The Block began filming on a Phillip Island resort for the 2024 season this month.

In September, Daily Mail Australia revealed the Channel Nine-owned company had purchased Island Cove Villas for a whopping $9.5million.

The properties are situated two and a half hours from Melbourne, and currently feature nine homes, a communal pool, a BBQ pavilion, tennis court and a children’s playground.

The site is just a short drive from the penguin parade on the Island, and is described as ‘breathtaking from the moment you arrive’.

A new batch of Blockheads will be tasked with transforming the resort after plans for a season in Daylesford, in north-west Victoria were scrapped.
